    Supervised Independent Living/Transitional Living Program

    Helping our youth deal with their trauma issues is the number one priority at the Children’s Home. In addition, efforts are made to help older youth develop independent living skills. The Supervised Independent Living Program (SILP) supports youth who live on their own in the community. SILP provides a transitional experience for youth for whom the plan of care is discharge from care to his/her own responsibility. 

    Youth in this program are between 18 and 21 years of age, have received their high school diploma or GED and are attending college and/or working in the community. Each apartment is fully equipped so that youth learn meal preparation, housekeeping, financial management and other skills needed for living independently.
